Young people from our All4One youth group have written #SixThings. It’s their ‘how to’ guide for local authority staff and others about the support they need as young people in care affected by immigration control. All those who wrote it are on their own in the UK, seeking asylum and living in Greater Manchester with foster carers or in supported lodgings. It starts: ‘We are experienced and brave. We have big dreams for our futures. We want to make positive change so that young people in our situation have the best care possible.’ Here are the “Six Things” they want you to know.
They are asking children’s services and other voluntary and statutory support organisations in Greater Manchester to support the principles behind “Six Things”. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
